Pretty damn tasty. Mangos and peaches stand out as fruity flavors on top of the other medium-bitter hoppy flavors. Even-flavored, medium bodied, with a nice lasting head, this is generally a good, slightly fruit-forward IPA that is dry without being too bitter or sweet.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed apricot color with a small white head and lacing that stays thru-out, smells of tropical and pine hops with sweet malts, taste follows the nose citrus and tropical hops are followed with a bitter pine hop, mouth feel was dry and some what bitter on the finish, liked this IPA ,did not like the dry / bitter finish, smell > taste , but overall a very nice brew

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Balanced aroma of citrusy hops and cereal grain malt sweetness.

T- Great delivery of hop flavor and bitterness with lots of malt backing. Has that aggressive but balanced thing going on. Also a bit of piney resinous quality.

M- Sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- A spectacular single IPA that I've been dying to try and can say that all the hoopla is well-deserved. I liken this to Flower Power, only a bit more amped up. Has that cereal grain malt sweetness that I so like to go with the hop attack.

This is one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

(L) It has a somewhat murky amber hue with a thin white head.

(A) The aroma is tropical fruit and some dankness.

(T) There’s some bready malt back bone, pine, grapefruit, mango, dankness, all very flavorful and well balanced.


(F) Its smooth and crisp and juicy, and easy to drink too quickly. It is a top notch IPA in my opinion.
